Lil Dicky Kicks A Freestyle With Comedy Without Sacrificing The Bars (Video)

This year, Lil Dicky took an Earth Day-themed song about saving the planet to the top of the charts. Even though the corresponding music video to “Earth” features Justin Bieber, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ariana Grande, and a host of others, the Greater Philadelphia native is still very in touch with his Hip-Hop roots.

Dicky recently appeared on Sway In The Morning. There, the MC with several multi-platinum singles has a freestyle field day. It demonstrates David Burd’s masterful flow as well as his quirky, sometimes cutting sense of humor. Just as JAY-Z famously said about the duality between hustling and rapping, Lil Dicky balances comedy with Hip-Hop as well as anybody.

After DJ Wonder drops a bouncy drum track, Lil Dicky drops a series of rewind-worthy couplets. “I’m in this b*tch like a f*tus / Ain’t no timelines when you’re timeless / Hold up, MJ, ’96 / Meaning I’m back on bullsh*t / You know I come hard like a full d*ck / Suburban and white, stay with some bread like some Cool Whip.” Involving props in his routine, he surprises Tracy G with a vase of flowers kept under the desk.

Synching his flow to the beat expertly, Dicky then turns to Sway. He stages a basketball foul and gives the host an imaginary set of free throw chances at the line. Moments later, he delivers another series of provocative bars. “I never need an advance / I’m switchin’ it up like I’m trans / Although I’m the Trojan man / I’m eating the p*ssy like cervical cancer.” Feeling himself, he adds, “I remember they thought I was Lonely Island / There will not be another like me / I could go viral if I put out a snippet / I’m sick like a cold, and you really could get it.” He plugs his show, before switching his delivery entirely and injecting melody to the delivery.

In his lyrics, Lil Dicky confronts issues, albeit with blunt humor. “Am I James Worthy? / Look at my bars, I made off like Bernie / Aw, we havin’ fun! / Girls see me and start blushing just because I am around / I used to always get a b*ner at my physical, Sway / If this is cultural appropriation, what can I say?

Moments later, he raps, “I’m such an idiot / I used to cover R. Kelly songs at my shows without even knowing it was problematic / I feel the pressure, under more scrutiny / What I do? Act more Jewishly / Come on, Sway, write my eulogy / Am I lookin’ like I need to get a job? / Or, lookin’ like I need a bodyguard? / I play tennis with Leonard-o.” Reaching his rap climax, Dicky closes, “Don’t f*ck on planes, but I’m comin’ up / Add up my views to sum it up / I was just on SportsCenter, duh-dun-duh-dun / I think this is good, I’ve done enough / My haters look mad like, ‘Son of a!’ / Now let me go and finish up my album / Like Jussie Sm*llett, you know I’m gonna f*ck it up.
